Time of Admission
Students wishing to apply for admission to the Special Education (SPLED) and Curriculum & Instruction (C I) Integrated Undergraduate-Graduate (IUG) degree initiate their application during the semester in which they complete SPLED 412. They finalize the application process at the end of the semester with a grade of B or better in SPLED 412. While this is typically the end of the junior year of study, it may fall sooner or later in a student's program.
Admission to the SPLED/C I IUG with reading specialist program will be based upon having attained a minimum GPA of 3.5 in Special Education courses, with a grade of B or better in SPLED 412. Admission will be based on a recommendation by the Reading Specialist Program Coordinator in consultation with the Coordinator of Teacher Education in Special Education.
If the student enrolls in the SPLED program and decides not to continue on to the joint SPLED/C I IUG, the student may complete SPLED 495 in their final semester and graduate with a B.S. in Special Education.
